For the first time, the coronavirus has been detected in Norway. A person who has been to China has tested positive for the virus.

However, the Norwegian Institute of Public Health considers it very unlikely that the person poses an infection risk.

– “The person was tested after coming home from China this weekend. The person is now at home in quarantine and is now healthy,” says Department Director Line Vold in FHI.

The Norwegian Institute of Public Health held an urgent press conference in Oslo on Wednesday evening.

By Tuesday, 100 samples from Norwegians had been taken for the covid-19 virus without the virus being detected.

    Presumably they flew into Gardemoen,,seated alongside others. Still testing positive they travelled to Tromso..sitting alongside others, in a car, bus, and or train—– or commuter plane…e.g.
    The average incubation period is 2-14 days-so ‘wait and see’ for another week.
    On the news –a few apparently recovered patients ..have had a recurrence of symptoms and tested positive again….
    (Check references to Japan and China..about recurring symptoms).
    Commonsense on a preventative basis ‘wait and see’

  2. I personally think it is already spreaded through Europe, they just don’t test everyone or they don’t say bacause would cause problem with the Economy. It’s very strange thay they kept flight with China running all this time and they have few cases
